No Design Can Happen by Chance
Nobody will have any doubt that the parts of a watch in the picture were designed by somebody. The encoding of the information in DNA is even more magnificent than the design in a watch. That being the case, it is a great lie to claim that that information came about by chance as the result of a decision by unconscious atoms.
You must have seen the name of a building spelt out in flowers on the
ground in front of it. Looking down at them or from far away, you can
immediately make out the name of the building or company concerned. That
is a sign that the flowers are not there by chance, that they have been
set out by gardeners and landscape designers. You may not see the gardeners
actually doing it, but you can see that it has happened from the name
the flowers spell out.
Alternatively, let us imagine that you leave the tiles scattered about
at random on the table after a game of Scrabble. When you return, you
see that the tiles now spell out the words: "I have won," and you immediately
realize that someone has arranged them in a meaningful sequence. You would
never imagine that they had come together by chance and formed those words,
in just the same way that you would never imagine the name the flowers
spelt out had appeared by chance. In short, if there is a design directed
to a particular end somewhere, then you know that there must definitely
be a designer behind it. You may not have seen the designer, yet you can
be certain of his existence and intention from his work or the traces
he leaves behind him.
The main idea we would like to convey with these examples is this: If
there is even the slightest sign of something planned somewhere, there
certainly lie the traces of a possessor of wisdom. For example, if you
roll white stones down a mountain trillions of times, you will never see
that they come to spell out the name of a building. If there is a word
or a sentence somewhere, everyone will agree that that word or sentence
must have been written by someone. Words without writers, or designs without
designers are quite impossible.
The human body, on the other hand, possesses a structure trillions of
times more complex than the name of a building or the words "I have won,"
and it is again totally impossible to imagine that this complexity could
have come about of its own accord, or by chance. Moreover, the trillions
of DNA that billions of living things have possessed for millions of years
have been used in the most intelligent manner, written in the most perfect
manner with no flaws, and placed in a tiny area invisible to the naked
eye. That being the case, there is a Creator who planned and designed
the cell and the DNA inside it so perfectly. Claiming the opposite means
to go beyond the bounds of reason and attack the very foundations of truth,
reason and logic.
Nevertheless, many people, who would readily say that it is impossible
for letters to arrange themselves to form even three little words, can
listen without objection to the deceit that it was all as a result of
"coincidences" that billions of atoms came together one by one in a planned
sequence and formed a molecule such as DNA, which performs such a super-complex
task. This is just like a hypnotized person's submitting to the hypnotist
and accepting by suggestion that he is a door, a tree or a lizard.
Flawless design samples in DNA are not limited to the above-mentioned
examples. The coding of the data in DNA has been designed in a much more
fascinating and amazing way.
Think of a jigsaw like the one in the picture. Every single piece needs to be in its right place for the puzzle to be completed and a picture emerge. Just like a jigsaw, all the nucleotides need to be in the correct order set out for them in order for the DNA molecules to form a perfect living thing and allow it to survive.
It is of course ridiculous to think that the scattered pieces of a jigsaw puzzle came together by chance to make the picture below. It is even more illogical to claim that DNA, which has an incomparably more perfect design and complex coding system than a jigsaw puzzle, formed by coincidence.
